About Me
italki teacher since Apr 2, 2013
Hi, I am a native speaker from South Africa. I have been teaching English online since 2012 and have experience teaching grammar, vocabulary as well as exam preparation. However, I do also enjoy conversation classes, and am curious by nature so I always have many questions to keep the conversation going. I really enjoy learning about anything new, therefore I am willing to chat about just about any topic. Having grown up in South Africa (a country with 11 official languages), I am familiar with both cultural and language barriers and can find a way around them. Some of my hobbies include, hiking, cycling, gardening, doing yoga, surfing and reading.

I have had 78 lessons so far. Far away of having enough! Every each lesson brings me further. My possibilities of using grammar expand and Jessy support my path of including more words and string together interesting and useful sentences. Thank you Jessy for your great motivation and talks.

I definitely struck the right note when I decided to push up my English with Jessie. Being a supportive and attentive teacher, she always can find the effective approach to achieve your goals. For instance, I feel that my writing and speaking skills are head and shoulder above what I had before our courses. Besides advanced grammar structures and valuable feedback, Jessie may provide fascinating conversations about everyday life. So she is not only a genuine teacher, she is also an exciting person to talk to.

I took a lot of lessons (more than 100) and I had many teachers (more than 15) and I can tell that Jessie is one of my favorite teachers. Why? Because she is very attentive, she always gives me the floor when I want to speak. She speaks but not too much (some teachers are too talkative!)And what I prefer she asks me a lot of questions. We had many discussions about different topics (travelling, dating on line, tourism, South Africa…) and it was always interesting. Thank you SUPER Jessie.
